3D Printing

Only staff are permitted to run the 3D printers. As a result, appointments are not available for these devices. To use the 3D printers email the Young Adult Librarian your 3D model in .stl file format. Once she has checked your print to make sure it will fit on one of our printers, she will send you an email with our available filament colors for that printer and where you are in our print queue. Once your print is finished she will email you to let you know when it can be picked up.

This service is limited to C. H. Booth Library cardholders only. Prints must be completed in 6 hours. Your print may be resized to fit this time limit. If your design must be resized, library staff will let you know before printing.

Cost of printing: The first 2 hours are free. It is $2 per hour after.

Find ready-to-print files at Thingiverse. You can find all sorts of fun things to print online, from keychains to household tools, decorations to replacement parts, and more! Design your own 3D models at TinkerCAD. TinkerCAD is free and offers tutorials to get you started. Library staff are unable to assist with the designing of 3D models. The library is not responsible for the quality of your design.

What else can you do?

We’ve got something for everyone – so come get creative with us! Convert home movies to digital format. Customize a mug for a friend. Borrow one of our sewing machines or book time to use the machine in the building. You can do all of this and so much more in the chbMAKERS’ Corner.
